    female bufflehead, this is a more conventional pose. too many of these don't know which one to process

    shot with A1 600GM + 2X (1200mm) f/8 1/4000 sec handheld processed with C1P. I am hosting this image on my own site since it cannot be compressed below 600KB but looks like it copied over a thumbnail too. cannot be fixed unfortunately.

    Very nice and sharp. I like the wings down view for sure, but I do find myself wishing the other wing was somewhat visible as well. Still a terrific image.

    For me, this is the perfect wings down flight pose. I would not want to see the far wing. Incredible sharpness. Skill level over the top. I'll go so far as to call this one a prefect image.

    ISO? Crop?

    Pretty much perfect....The flight pose is spot on...The feather details and colours from the neck down to the tail looking amazing.

    thanks Kurt I posted this precisely because only one wings was visible…something different and a shot I didn’t quite have before .

    Not much to add Arash. Inspirational as always. Thoughts about removing the lower or higher catch light?
